Rolling with a smaller training partner - By George Atton
I am a 115kg purples belt out of GSA Alexandria and I wanted to share some of my ideas when I am rolling with the smaller people in the gym.
Firstly I need to be very aware that a sudden uncontrolled moved on my part could result in injury to my partner, also people train for a variety of reasons and having a larger partner crushing down on them for 5 minutes might not be their idea of fun. Jiu Jitsu is for life and I think it’s our responsibility to try and encourage and develop the gentle art for everyone
Surviving your first six months of Jiu Jitsu - by Paul Henningham
I?ve got strong memories of my first class: the anticipation, anxiety, confusion and exhaustion. I was one of those guys who used every ounce of strength and stamina at my disposal to try and thwart the attacks of my more experienced classmates. I was hooked pretty quickly when I discovered how easily they could control and submit me.

The great results achieved by SRG Thai Boxing Sydney on the year of 2012, have not been limited to the outstanding talent of Luis SRG Regis and Matt Douglas.
With an incredible upcoming team of fighter, SRG Thai Boxing Gym has now engraved their space into the Australian scene of Muay Thai.
Leonie SRG Macks made to number 1 featherweight Muay Thai Fighter of Australia after beating Dina Sokol, once in September and then again for the on the 23rd of November. Mary SRG Wildner, Jack Kearney, Nikita Maslov, Derek Munnelly, Joe Roder and Adam Bowlby had amazing fights on the Warrior FC Show down in Canberra. They all learned a lot on that day.
Training has finished. I’m sitting on the end of the mats, sweat running down my face, staring blankly at the floor. I just got smashed by about 3 guys in a row. I was choked, passed, swept; repeatedly. For a few minutes, I am pretty disappointed in myself. I mean, my passing game had been coming along nicely before this.
The part that everyone looks forward to most when they train, is Rolling.
I don't even think this is just making a generalization, I literally think that its true for everyone.................probably.
I'm no different; now I love learning the new technique, I love revisiting an old technique and really listening to my teacher highlight some oh so subtle but oh so important details, I love listening to my teacher tell me that Royler or Rolker or HICKSON, showed him this detail (man I really love this part), but Rolling is where the world gets real. Everyone want to see how these pieces of information translate to their game, they want the satisfaction of using that technique they just learnt to WIN.
